Then:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to help establish a regional collaboration of national significance for the Great Lakes, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Policy.  The Great Lakes are a national treasure constituting the largest freshwater system in the world.
